Preview

Wolfsburg host Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday as both sides continue their fight to finish in the top four.

Wolfsburg are currently third in the league, four points off RB Leipzig in second.

Oliver Glasner's side got back to winning ways against Stuttgart in midweek after two back-to-back losses against Frankfurt and Bayern Munich.

Die Wolfe know that a win against Dortmund on Saturday will go a long way towards their hopes of finishing in the top four.

Borussia Dortmund are on a three-game winning streak in the Bundesliga after a rocky spell that saw them win only three of their previous eight league games.

Dortmund are currently fifth in the Bundesliga, four points behind Frankfurt in fourth. Coach Edin Terzic will hope that his side can continue their form against a high-flying Wolfsburg side on Saturday.

Both teams will be determined to win the game on Saturday, as it will be crucial to their hopes of finishing in the top four.


Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-Head

Borussia Dortmund have dominated the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, winning all five previous league meetings without conceding a goal.

In fact, the last time Wolfsburg scored a goal against a Dortmund side was back in 2016.

Terzic's side came away as 2-0 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
